Thanks for your comments in a busy week. I must admit I wasn't entirely happy with the focus or the lighting on this picture. Seems that the lighting was very much a personal preference, from the comments received.

Might have worked better if the green was in focus, not the other part -hector

Great Yukka plant. But they sure get sharp when full grown. A little off center for me. The dark area should have been partly cropped off putting the new plant closer to middle, to suit me personally. A little soft on the new plant and sharper on the old part. Would prefer reversed. Still a good strong 5. PTL

Would have been nice if the green leaves where in focus.

challenge -- met. the trunk of the yukka gives a good sense of perspective.
technical -- the focus isn't quite right, that's the hardest thing with macros. i would also prefer more even lighting, but that's probably a personal preference. i like the green of the shoot against the brown of the trunk.
composition -- good placement of the shoot in the overall frame. did you try this in a vertical format at all? the shoot feels somewhat closed in because it's so close the the top and bottom of the frame.

Is this jpeg artifacting or is this effect intentional?

I think this may work better if the lighting was even. I like the off center composition.
